I find kangaroos incredibly expressive. Whether contemplating their facial expressions, their stance or their behaviours, I often find myself wondering what they are thinking.
This collection of metal kangaroo sculptures are the first in my Australian Series.
After dedicating an entire collection to African animals, I am excited to showcase Australian native animals in my art.
The kangaroo is such an iconic Australian animal that it just wasn’t possible to stop at one roo sculpture.
My first kangaroo sculpture was the Standing Roo, with its curious pose and rotated ears.
In response to the popularity of the Standing Roo, I started playing around with different poses for my metal kangaroo sculptures, which are now among my most popular artworks.
This is the Eating Roo, an endearing character whose pose reminds me of the yoga position Downward Facing Dog.
My corten steel kangaroos are the perfect garden sculptures to turn your property into the place that everyone is talking about and wants to visit.
They will bring any backyard to life or create a fascinating focal point at businesses such as hotels, wineries and golf courses.
My Australian kangaroo sculptures won first prize in the ‘Estate’ category at the 2018 Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show. They also claimed the People’s Choice Award at the 2018 Lake Light Sculpture Festival in Jindabyne.
